Today, most automotive brands are lucky to have even one good truck in their lineup. GMC, however, is an outlier; with the upcoming release of the all-new 2015 GMC Canyon, there will be three great trucks in GMC’s truck lineup. From the Sierra to the Sierra Denali and back down to the upcoming midsize Canyon, the brand will have the perfect truck for anyone and everyone.
The spotlight is switching to the all-new Canyon, which fills in the gaping hole in the midsize truck segment in America. “The all-new Canyon is the segment’s first premium midsize truck, delivering class-leading capabilities with the brand’s signature refinement,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC Sales and Marketing. “It’s an efficiently sized, maneuverable package for customers who want the cargo-hauling and trailering versatility of a truck without the size of a full-size pickup.”
Don’t let the word “midsize” fool you, though. The new Canyon will be crazy capable. It will come with a 2.5-liter engine and 200 horsepower, but you can even upgrade to a 3.6-liter V6 engine to get up to 305 horsepower. With all that power, you will be able to haul up to 7,000 lbs and tackle literally any task you can put before this truck. So, come see us at Crawford Buick GMC once the Canyon hits our dealership to check out all three of GMC’s outstanding trucks!

With football season upon us, not only is it time to hit the stands for some exciting games—it’s also time to hit the parking lots for one of the best parts of the experience: tailgating! Pinic-basket.com has compiled a list of essential steps toward becoming a professional tailgater this season, and we’ve highlighted some of our favorite steps below:
Provide Assorted Spirits
“There’s nothing quite like a cold brew to warm up your insides and make you feel all warm ‘n fuzzy on an icy cold day; or an frosty beer to really make you appreciate a nice warm spring day” says pinic-basket.com.
Up Your Food Game
A successful tailgate requires awesome food. Grill up some burgers and hot dogs, along with vegetarian options. Have a wide range of tailgating foods available so everyone has a variety they enjoy.
Dress Like A Pro Tailgater
Don’t forget to look the part while playing corn hole! Wear your team colors or your favorite player’s jersey. No matter what, make sure you are enjoying yourself and you are dressed for the weather, warm or cold.
Have a Portable TV and Radio
A portable TV allows you to enjoy both the pre-game and the game. Want to have some music but don’t have a cordless radio? You can use your car radio while having your open trunk double as additional seating or a food/drink station.
Enjoy watching your favorite team and enjoy the ultimate tailgate in a new GMC Sierra from Crawford Buick GMC.
Have you ever wished you could check your car’s tire pressure and oil level with the click of a button? Well, there’s an app for that. The OnStar RemoteLink App provides OnStar users the ability to connect to their vehicles wherever they are and now, the app has surpassed the one million active users mark, making it one popular app.
“Over the past few years, RemoteLink has become one of the more popular OnStar service offerings,” said Terry Inch, chief operating officer of OnStar. “Customers see the value in having a remote connection to their vehicle, which comes in handy during the summer and winter months, or when planning a trip.”
Some features included in the OnStar RemoteLink App include the ability to lock and unlock car doors; starting the vehicle remotely; and, providing vehicle information with Get Vehicle Info. RemoteLink is available on all major smartphone platforms—iOS, Android, Blackberry, and Windows—but is most commonly used on iOS devices.
